The Beast And The Blessed

Chapter 20

Twenty-Three: Natalie

Natalie’s P.O.V.

Their low talking could be heard as I rounded the corner, and I felt my stomach tie into a knot as Killian
and Princess Charlotte stood waiting for me. I was late, and it was not welcomed based on Killian’s
look of disappointment.

My nerves about meeting his sister somehow managed to surpass my anxiety about meeting the king
himself. While I was terrified of him for his well-known history of murder and aggression, the stories of
her made her all the more fearsome. When her brother took the throne, she took to mercenary work.

The stories of her slaying dragons, sirens, and banshees were known across the world. She was a

“Here she is now,” Killian said, but the way his eyes narrowed told me that I would be hearing about my
late arrival later. “Natalie, this is my sister, Charlotte.”

The young woman turned to face me, and my jaw dropped at the stunning princess. Her hair was a
light. brown that fell into perfectly styled ringlets. The bright green of her eyes made what portraits I had
seen. of her mother seem dull.

“Please, call me Charlie.” She said as she extended her arm toward me. I moved forward, expecting a
dainty shake suitable for a member of the royal family. Instead, I was met with a slightly calloused palm
and a firm shake as if we were conducting a business transaction. “I’m really happy Killian found you!
He needs someone to knock some sense into him every now and then.”

Oh, I wanted to knock some sense into him alright. But I would start with the long overdue fight we
needed to have.

“It’s lovely to meet you, Your Highness,” I said, curtseying to the princess with respect. When I looked
up, she was staring at me with her eyebrows together in confusion, and her eyes locked on my neck.

She hummed in response before looking to her brother with a raised eyebrow, but he shook his head
and gestured toward the table.

“Ladies,” He said as he pulled out his sister’s seat before moving toward mine. I grabbed the back of
my chair and dragged it away from the table before taking a seat, making sure to tuck it back in before
he could get a single finger on it. He had never pulled my chair out for me before. Why put on a show
for his sister?

The look of amusement Charlie sent me made me blush, but I held my head high as the servants came
forward and placed the first course in front of us. It was not lost on me that the guards had been
stationed outside the room for our privacy, and Charlie waited until the servants left before speaking.

“So Natalie, I hear you have been impressing the pack with your training. From what I’ve gathered you
are a quick study.” Charlie said as she took a large and improper bite of her roll. “I would love to train
with you. while I’m here.”

I reached for my glass of water and took a sip as I swallowed my bite before responding, placing my
hands back in my lap. “Thank you, your highness. I have heard the stories of your adventures and
would also love to know more about them.”

Killian continued to stare at me as if I were a side attraction at a circus, but I refused to look his way. He
wanted me to act as if I were his mate, but he did not want me to actually fill the position.

“I have plenty to share. From what I understand, my team and I will have new stories before we leave
here. Rumor has it that there has been an attack, and we have come to join the guard.” Her declaration
of wanting to fight against the vampires made me feel relieved, but Killian’s head snapped over with

Charlle raised her palm in his direction and cut him off before he could protest. “No need to argue with
me, brother. We are more than capable of fighting off a few measly bloodsuckers”

Killian opened his *to speak but stopped short as his eyes turned black. I knew someone was
contacting him through their pack link, and I rolled my eyes as I returned back to my food. That was
one good thing about not shifting. I wouldn’t need to worry about people interrupting me constantly.

“I see some things never change,” Charlie muttered, and I could see her annoyance as Killian placed
his fork back down. “I haven’t seen you in months, and you can’t even spend a dinner with me to
reunite without working.”

‘Charlie, you know that I missed you, but this is my job. You of all people should understand. Now, if
you’ll excuse me. I will be right back. Something urgent has come up, but it should only take a minute.”
He said as he rose to his feet. I did the same out of respect for his title, but Charlie leaned back against
her chair as she glared up at him. Killian moved toward the door, stopping behind me for a quick
moment, but I didn’t bother to turn around as he whispered, “Be good.”

His quiet warning was easily heard by his sister, and I watched as her interest peaked even further. As
soon as the door *behind Killian, I took my seat, aware of the scrutinizing gaze of the princess.

“He said he found you weeks ago. Yet, you bare no mark.” She observed, falling silent as the servants
entered the room again with the next course. She gestured with her finger for them to place Killian’s
food down before swiping one of the fingerling potatoes from his plate as the staff made their way
toward the door.

“That is correct, your highness,” I said as I began to cut into my steak. If Killian wanted me to be good,
then I would do my best to abide by his rules.

“Please, just call me Charlie. We’re family now.” She insisted as she took a sip of her wine.

“That doesn’t seem appropriate given my position,” I said, placing another bite of my dinner in my *and
chewing slowly. No matter how many meals I had in the castle, the quality of the food managed to
astonish me each time.

“You are my brother’s mate, the next queen. Your position is soon to be above mine.” She said as she
dipped her roll in the juice from her steak. “You have no idea how good this is after living off of jerky
and berries for the past month.”

“I think there has been a miscommunication,” I said as I set my fork down and looked up at the
princess, who was thoroughly enjoying her food.

“Elaborate.” She demanded, but amusement and interest sparkled in her eyes. “Tell me what it is that
I’m missing here.”

I took a deep breath through my nose, pressing my lips together as I debated revealing the truth. But
who was I to withhold information from the Princess? She demanded that I explain, and Killian wanted
me to ‘ be good’. Refusing a member of the royal family didn’t seem to be following his orders.

“I am not to be the queen, nor am I your brother’s mate. I was chosen by your brother and brought
here. against my will. He has made it clear that he wants nothing to do with me, and if his witch’s vision
is correct, I will be dead soon, and he will go on to live another day to choose another to breed with. I
would love to get to know you and hear the stories of your adventures, but it will be as your underling,
not as your brother’s mate. So, I believe I am correct when I refer to you by your title, Princess
Charlotte.” I stated as I looked down at my plate of food, suddenly no longer feeling hungry.

I had thought about it a hundred times, but hearing it out loud when my thoughts weren’t being
controlled by my heat-induced deliria made the reality of it sink in. For the past few days, I had been
going back and forth between denial, false acceptance, and anger. But now that I had said the words, it
felt so final. I felt my heart breaking in my chest, and I slouched back in my seat.

Killian pushed the door open at the moment, slowing in his stride as he approached the table to see my
defeat and his sister’s anger. “What happened here?”

I didn’t bother to stand for him this time. My energy was gone. “I would like to retire for the night. It was
lovely meeting you, Your Highness.”

“Likewise,” Charlie said as she stood with me, nodding her head in respect. I was taken aback by her
gesture but felt my heart warm that maybe she wasn’t like her brother. “We will catch up tomorrow and
get to know each other.”

I nodded in agreement, knowing it was more of a demand than an invitation. Killian didn’t bother trying
to stop me as I left the room.

Tobias was waiting outside, and I bit back my smile as I heard Charlie start to yell before the door was
fully closed. It seemed I may have an ally here after all.

“What the *is wrong with you, Killian?!”

The warmth was intense as it radiated from me, but the burning between my legs made me press my
thighs together. The movement forced me to let out a small moan.

I wanted to slip my hand back between my legs to ease the pain and discomfort. But having him
holding my head back and his lips brushing against mine ruined the option for me. After feeling his
touch, I knew that doing it myself would not satisfy me any longer. I needed him.

The only option would be to have him between my legs, whether it was his hand, face, or *.

His hot breath fanned against my lips and had me *mine in return. I moaned as the tip of my tongue.
gently ran across his lower lip, and he growled in response before capturing my *in a kiss that made my
toes curl.

I had expected him to be rough and demanding. Instead, our tongues collided as he pulled my *and
wet body up against his. My hair fell loose around my shoulders as he took the hair tie off of my bun.
His hold on me seemed to grow tighter, yet as he slid his palm down from his grip on the back of my
neck, skimming the side of my breast and to my hip, it was loving.

-My body heated further, and I let out a whimper into his *as I felt him press his hardness against my

“Please.” The gasp left my *before I could stop it, and I pulled back as I looked up at the man who had
saved me from the miserable life that I had before. My nails dug into his shoulder as I gripped him
tightly. “Please, Killian. Make it stop.”

Everywhere we touched sparks danced under my skin, but the pain in my core and the warmth of my
body were uncomfortable. His hands slid around, gripping my *tightly as he lifted me from the ground
and settled himself between my legs. The feeling of his large shaft against my *was incredible, and as I
held myself up by his shoulders, I began to rock against him.

My wetness coated him, the heat making my body more sensitive and needy than ever before, and he
let out a groan of pleasure as I continued to use him.

Beads of sweat formed over my body as I pulled my hips back, trying to guide him into me.

“Please,” I gasped again, and Killian let out a growl that made my clit pulse with need. I wanted to cry
when he pulled me away from him, flipping me onto my stomach on the cold silk sheets.

“Do you want me to *you, little one?” He asked, his voice deeper than before as his beast fought for
control. I could feel his claws digging into my hips as he lifted them until I was on my hands and knees,
the pain only adding to the pleasure.

“Yes!” I cried out, pushing myself back against his *.

Killian rubbed himself against me once more before guiding himself into me in one deep and long
thrust, making my back arch as I dropped my face down onto the mattress with a loud moan of

The growl that ripped free from him was followed by him slamming into me harder than before.

My hands curled into fists, gripping the sheets for dear life as I tried to match his thrusts.

The pain of my heat evaporated, and I felt my body begin to cool back to its normal temperature as his
large member brought me greater pleasure than anything I had ever experienced before.

I wanted more. I desperately needed it. My clit was throbbing, screaming for attention from the man
that was inside me. I slid my hand down the sheet, moving it between my legs as my cheek pressed
into the mattress harder.

The wetness on my *made my fingers slide easily against my clit. I let out a moan, feeling myself
tighten around Killian’s *.

“No.” He growled as he stopped his movement, holding himself deep inside me as he leaned over my
back. My body was shaking as the heat began to return, and I gasped in surprise as his hand ran over
my breast and up to my throat. The warmth of his chest against my back was delicious, and I began to
wiggle my hips on him, desperate for more. “That’s mine.”

My eyes rolled to the back of my head as he tightened his hold on my neck ever so slightly before
following my arm between my legs. His fingers laced through mine as he gently pulled my hand away
before finding his way back between my legs, his *pulsing inside me as he began to rub my clit

My legs opened further, my hips getting closer to the bed, only being held up by the man *me. The
burning began to return, stronger than last time. The cry that left me made Killian tense, and I could

feel his breathing halt from his chest against my back.

“I need more,” I gasped in pleasure as he began to thrust again, pulling out only a few inches before.
crashing into me and holding himself as deep as he could. The small movements brought even less
relief than before, and I ground my hips back against him. “Please.”

The begging seemed to encourage him, and he leaned away, removing himself from my back but
keeping his hand between my legs.

I could feel my walls stretching around him. The feeling of his large *inside me was euphoric, and I
clenched my walls around him, wanting to pull him in deeper. “Killian!”

The orgasm I was desperately craving was only a few strokes away. My toes curled in anticipation just
before I reached my high, moaning out his name as he continued to *me from behind.

The heat that had been destroying my body washed away, giving me a moment to breathe as Killian
slowed. I could feel his restraint. The way his hands were gripping my hips so tightly that they would
leave. bruises, the low growl that seemed to constantly rumble from his chest, and the slow but forceful
way he was sliding in and out of me.

I wanted to enjoy it. There was nothing that I craved more than to indulge in the abilities of the man.
behind me.

“Do you feel better, little one?” He asked as he thrust back in me, holding himself as deeply as he
could, his fingers still playing with my clit as he paused the thrusting of his hips. “Do you want more?”

I knew it would come back. The heat would not leave until the full moon did. We had all night.

Just because we had *once, and not even to completion for him, didn’t mean that my heat would be
sated. It only meant that it would be gone for now. It could be a matter of seconds or minutes before it


“Yes,” I whispered against the sheet as I wiggled my hips against him.

Killian’s hand left my clit, and I cried out in disappointment, only to be silenced as he grabbed my hair
in his large fist, pulling my head back. “Try again, little one. Do you want me to keep *you?”

My jaw was open in surprise, but I knew if he could see the flush in my cheeks, and the way my eyes
were surely dilated, he would have no question of my need for him. “Yes, I want you to keep *me.”

I moaned as he released my hair and pulled out of me simultaneously. The sound of him leaving my

wetness filled the room, and I pushed myself up on the palms of my hands as I turned to look over my
shoulder at him.

He was staring between my legs with hunger, his glowing red eyes locked on my *as he gripped my
thighs before flipping me over. I bounced once from the movement, but it was the predatory way that he
stared at me that filled me with more excitement than before.

I wanted to feel every part of him. I had his *and hand between my legs, but what would it be like to
have a king’s face between them? I stopped moving when my head hit the pillows. Killian let out a loud
growl as I met his stare, not bothering to look away or submit as I challenged him by opening my legs.

“You said this was yours.” I taunted as I slid my hand between my legs rubbing my clit twice before
dipping my fingers into my wetness and dragging it back up to resume the small circles on the delicate
bundle of nerves. “Would you like to taste it?”

The confidence was new to me, but I felt like another person as I lifted my wet fingers to my *and ran
my tongue up the side of my index finger.

Killian crawled forward, his body shaking as he approached. I knew he had accepted my challenge as
he hovered over me, his hard *hanging between us and gently brushing against my clit. His breath
tickled my lips as he flashed me a wicked smile. “You are not the one in charge here. This is my
kingdom. My bed…” I gasped as his tongue *at my upper lip once before he moved down my body,
stopping to *aggressively on my hardened nipples before continuing on.

My breathing halted as I stared down the valley of my breasts at him and watched as he took in a deep
breath between my legs with a growl of pleasure.

“Mine.” He groaned before grabbing my thighs and pressing them open further. His hot tongue ran up
from my entrance to my clit where he began his feast of *, *, and gently biting. My head was pressed
into the pillow, and I moaned with every exhale as my back arched, and my hands squeezed the sheets
in my fists.

His fingers plunged inside me, and my eyes closed as he spread, rubbed, and pumped them in me.

“Yes,” I cried out, as I felt myself building closer to my climax. It was instinct as I pulled one hand free of
the bedding and entwined my fingers in Killian’s hair, holding him to me as I ground myself against his
face. “Yes!”

My muscles in my pelvis spasmed lightly as I came on his *, my body trying to force my clit away. from
him at the intense sensations throbbing through it. But he held me down with one arm wrapped under
my thigh and his hand on my stomach, keeping me to him as I rode out every last wave of pleasure.

He stopped, turning his head to *and kiss my inner thigh as I continued to moan softly with each.

It had been exhilarating, but the slow burning in my core told me that his *would not have the same.

My eyes closed tightly as he pulled himself above me, his wet fingers that had just been inside me
pulled at my bottom lip, and I opened my *as he pushed his fingers in. The sweet taste was subtle, but I
enjoyed it as I *on his digits eagerly.

“It is time for you to serve your king.” His declaration made my eyes *open and my heat return tenfold.
My body wanted it just as bad as my mind did. I wanted to serve him, pleasure him, and *him.

I wanted to know what he tasted like and what rhythm and movements he enjoyed. I wanted to watch
his face as I brought him to climax, knowing it was me and only me doing so. He expected loyalty and
promised me the same. While i still questioned if he had just been telling me what I wanted to hear, I

knew in my soul that when he said it, he was being honest.

“Yes, my king.”

I whined in protest as the warmth of his body left mine before he grabbed my hips and rolled me on top
of him. My hands pressed against his chest as I pushed myself up, setting my legs on either side of him
and enjoying the feeling of his long and hard shaft between the lips of my *.

I slid against him, coating him in my wetness. His glowing red eyes bore into mine, fueling me to
continue as I rubbed my clit on him like the *in heat that I was. Two orgasms would have been good for
a normal night, but tonight, under the power of the full moon, I needed more. My head fell back as I
found the right spot to get full contact with my clit on his shaft.

Killian’s hands gripped my hips firmly, holding me down to him as he watched me pleasure myself with.
him. The gentle pulling and pushing of him encouraging me to continue, only made me feel needier.

As the heat increased, I lifted my hips, unable to take it anymore. I reached between us, grabbing his
large *in my palm before lining him up with my entrance and sinking down onto him as my head fell
back in pleasure.

I widened my legs, tucking my feet under his thighs as I leaned forward and pressed my clit against his
pelvis. Killian growled louder than before as my breasts brushed his face when I began to grind against

He pressed his hips up each time I slid myself back against him. The full contact with my clit *me wild,
and I moved harder and faster than before. Killian’s hand slid up my side to grab my breast, pinching
my nipple and making me cry in both pain and pleasure.

“Mine,” I said under my breath, the uncontrollable and unintentional word throwing off my rhythm as I
knew he didn’t really belong to me. Physically we worked well together, but emotionally, I knew nothing
about him.

Killian tensed beneath me, continuing to move with me as I resumed my previous pace, but my orgasm
was further away than before.

My mind was fogged by the heat, and the brief moment of insanity disappeared in my mind as he
fought the shift. His jawline became more defined, and his canines extended. His claws punctured the
skin on my hips, sending a surprising amount of pleasure straight to my core.

It pushed me right back to the edge, and I felt myself clamping down on his larger *as I came around
him. My pelvis trembling from the extreme orgasm as I screamed out his name.

Killian shook beneath me as I continued to ride out the release. He lifted me by my hips, pulling himself
from me as he came on his stomach before letting me rest back against him. His shaft lay between my
legs as I resumed rubbing myself along his member in the wetness brought on by the multiple

My chest fell against his as I shoved my face into his neck, breathing deeply as I came down from my
high. Killian’s hands released my hips as he wrapped his arms around my back and held me to him. I
could feel his *between us, but somehow it made me feel even hotter than before.

The way my body reacted to this man was other-worldly, and I took a moment to thank the goddess for
creating these creatures.

Killian grew hard once more as I pressed a kiss against the hot skin of his neck before running my lips
up to his ear and gently pulling on the lobe between my teeth. He let out a growl as I whispered,
